The holidays are quickly approaching, and it’s time to fill your calendar with all the festivities that will make your celebrations complete. Let Paragon Car & Van Rental provide a vehicle rental to get you to your destination in the windy city this season. Chicago is full of opportunities for you to soak in your favorite holiday traditions and create new ones with your family. Here are some events and adventures you can enjoy in your car rental before this fleeting season is over.

Ice skating in downtown Chicago


As the most authentic traditional holiday market of its kind outside of Europe, the Christkindlmarket offers a unique shopping experience, intercultural activities, and events for the whole family. Top it off by reserving your table at the Timber Haus for the ultimate German culinary experience. This market is open seven days a week in Daley Plaza and will run through Christmas Eve.

Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo

The Lincoln Park Zoo closes early each day and reopens for visitors to enjoy a winter wonderland of lights, running until early January 2024. There will be new and exciting displays, photo ops, and interactive programming to help participants celebrate the holiday season against a beautiful backstop of light displays.

Ice Skating 

The ice skating rinks are open and ready for your family to come and create some memories! You can indulge in outdoor ice skating at Millennium Park Ice Rink, McCormick Tribune Plaza, or McKinley Park Skating Rink. Nothing feels more magical during the holidays than laps around the ice skating rink.

Christmas Around the World

The Museum of Science and Industry invites you to explore holiday traditions from around the world while you create your own traditions with your loved ones. This annual celebration started with a single tree and grew to a four-story-high Grand Tree that reaches the top of the dome, surrounded by a forest of over 50 trees and decorated displays. This year will feature the wonders of snow with intricate images of snowflakes.
